Dang, the title sounds like a Science Fiction Movie!

Okay, 2020 is done, gone, adios amigo. I have spoken. Interestingly enough, I never had any gaming plans or objectives for 2020 even though I discovered some genres and figures I enjoyed painting and gaming. Anyway . . . here are my miniature gaming goals for 2021:

Sounds like manageable goals. I like your brushwork.

A PLAN? Now we're expected to have PLANS? Oh, very well.

1.7-9 games with opponents. I'd like 12, but it ain't going to happen.
2. Complete painting 28mm horse & musket forces. That's about 150 infantry, 60 cavalry, 12 gunners and two guns left to paint--all here waiting impatiently or ordered.
3. Finish 5mm Ancients for Persian and Peloponnesian Wars. Buy Republican Romans if H&R resumes production this year.
4. Sell or give away all surplus wargaming stuff which isn't actually made of lead.
5. Stack the surplus lead neatly, and hope conventions resume in 2022.

Please let me know if the Approving Authority rejects the plan.

I normally just open my closet and stare at all the hobby goodness within, close the door and go downstairs and watch football.

Good plan

I myself would like to finish more units for my 28mm SYW armies (which would be 1 French cavalry regiment, 2 battalions of the Irish Brigade, a Prussian fusilier and FreiKorps battalion, an Austrian dragoon and hussar regiment and a battalon of grenzers) and then also finish more 6mm Napoleonics (2 regiments of French hussars, 3 regiments of Austrian kuirassiers and 2 battalions of Austrian grenadiers)

Plus, if possible, re-base some of my horde of 15mm ACW

Might be overly ambitious

Sorry Frederick: plans must include numbers of figures. I've seen "regiments" the size of color guards.

The first part of planning is making a plan. I plan to start that project soon.

Robert Piepenbrink,
I love Number 5!

It's a good plan.

Unfortunately, none of my plans survive contact with my greatest enemies – limited free time & budget!
